New Cold Wave Aims at Midwest, East Next Week

Chilly temps will mean it's time to bundle up

A new sweep of cold air will race across the Midwest this weekend and will reach the East and South later on Monday.

While the air coming in next week will not be as cold as last week, it will shave temperatures by 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit off weekend highs in the 60s and 70s in the Midwest and East.

The colder air will follow a dose of rain and gusty, locally damaging winds across the Midwest this weekend and the Appalachians and East Coast Sunday night into Monday.

Unlike the arrival of the cold air the last time, the rain will simply end in most areas without any snowflakes. The exception will be around the Upper Midwest, where a bit of snow is forecast Sunday night into early Monday.

The core of the Arctic air will stay north over the Canada border over the Plains and generally north of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Valley farther east. However, it will get cold enough for a round of lake-effect snow.

The combination of wind, chilly air and other factors will make for RealFeel® temperatures 10 to 20 degrees lower than the actual temperature from the Upper Midwest and Northeast, southward along the Atlantic coast to part of the Deep South.

On Monday, RealFeel temperatures will dip to near freezing around Chicago and Detroit. The same is true for Pittsburgh on Tuesday. RealFeel temperatures will be in the 30s at times on Tuesday in New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Nighttime low temperatures will stop short of freezing along the I-20 corridor in Texas and the South during the middle of next week. Temperatures are likely to dip to near freezing along the I-40 corridor from Tennessee to North Carolina Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Farther north, nighttime temperatures may dip to freezing around Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., Tuesday night and Wednesday night.

The new blast of cold air may be more abbreviated than the last one and will generally only last a day or two in most areas, before temperatures rebound again.

For those of you who are uneducated tea baggers. Just because it is cold out doesn't mean global warming doesn't exist. It's the WHOLE WORLD we're talking about. PLEASE get a clue. Also, read up. You people are so totally clueless. I guess the biggest storm in world history hitting the Philippines isn't enough for you to understand. Water temps there are 85 degrees. You think that is normal? WOW - sheer stupidity reins supreme on the far right wing gas bag side.

Check out the Time Magazine cover from '74-'75 warning of the coming Ice Age. Air and water polution were horribly worse than compared to today.

Once upon a time we had the ice age. There were no SUVs at the time or humans using fosil fuels. What made the planet warm again? Maybe Al Gore has the answer.
